MovieViews


The MovieMuse Reviews (MovieViews) database is a searchable collection of films that the team have watched. It provides a link to an in-depth review or a short opinion on the film and a rating, as well as a link to the film’s poster or DVD cover. Over time this will build into a comprehensive guide about what to watch and what to avoid.

You can search and sort the list by individual film names, genre, reviewer, score and other variables to inform you on whether a film is worth your time, or to inspire you for your next movie night.

We will also use the database to create periodic lists of the recommended films in all sorts of categories. These lists will be shared on the website and some will even come with a video.

Dads Army 2016 Comedy, War Pointless remake with a flimsy script and very few laughs.The best bit is the outtakes during the credits. 2
David Brent: Life on the Road 2016 Comedy, Music All the worst bits of the office stretched into a movie. Comedy has moved on and it is time that David Brent cleared his desk. 1.5
Cyrus 2010 Comedy, Drama, Romance Marisa Tomei makes the film worthwhile. Just. 2.5
D-Tox 2000 Crime, Thriller Agatha Christie-esque thriller with some pretty poor acting, but the thrills are worth it. 3.5
DOA: Dead or Alive 2006 Action, Adventure Excellently realises the game world and uses amazing scenery and fight sequences to keep you there. One of the few video game movies worth your time. 3.5
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Sword of Destiny 2016 Action, Adventure Lacking the stye and substance of the original, it feels like a collection of set pieces around a flimsy story. Even some of the Wuxia wire-work is disappointing. 2.5
Creed 2015 Drama, Sport Rocky's rebirth as a cross between Mickey and Apollo is played to perfection by Stallone and is the perfect way to create a new franchise. 4
Couple in a Hole 2015 Drama, Thriller I have never felt so much tension in a film or seen the pain of the characters so clearly. 4
Cop Car 2015 Crime, Thriller Click to see our Film Club review. 4
Convenience 2015 Comedy An enjoyable farce that is reminiscent of 4 Lions in tone rather than subject matter. 3
Cobra 1986 Action, Crime, Thriller Low budget visuals let down what could have been one of the great 80s action flicks, but the humour keeps it ticking along. 3
ClownTown 2016 Horror, Thriller Terrible modern horror that repeats the bad old days of no plot, skill or worth. 1.5
Cliffhanger 1993 Action, Adventure, Thriller Stallone in a more subdued action role. The climbing scenes are very well shot. 3.5
Cinderella 2015 Fantasy, Romance Pointless retelling of the same old story. Adds nothing new and has some wincingly bad supporting performances (Rob Brydon. Why?). 2
Chi-Raq 2016 Comedy, Drama Powerful stuff. Some amazing monologues tear the American gun lobby and street gang culture to shreds. 4
Child 44 2015 Crime, Drama, Thriller A great story brilliantly told. I hope to see more of the books translated to film. 4
Central Intelligence 2016 Action, Comedy Tries its best to ruin things for itself with some shockingly bad jokes, but is still the best Hollywood buddy-comedy for some time. 3.5
Changing Lanes 2002 Drama, Thriller An emotional thriller that makes you feel every twist of the knife. 4
Catch Me Daddy 2014 Drama, Thriller Bleak and brutal. Raw and beautifully shot. 4
Casablanca 1942 Drama, Romance Great dialogue and performances, but after 40 years of mis-quoted impressions the real correct lines feel wrong! 4
Carol 2015 Drama, Period, Romance Not really about Carol at all, the film is nicely shot but far too predictable. 3.5
Captain Fantastic 2016 Adventure, Comedy, Drama As soon as the road trip starts so does the movie. As socialist a movie as 'I, Daniel Blake' but nowhere near as obvious about it. 3.5
Captain America: Civil War 2016 Action, Fantasy, SciFi Despite being a tad long (like all of the Cap films) and the big fight scene ultimately proving pointless, CapAm:CivWar is the best Avengers film yet. I'll be glad when the Cap/Bucky love-in is over however. 4
Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014 Action, Fantasy, SciFi Not quite a match for The FirstAvenger as the Cap and Bucky bromance feels misplaced. 3.5
Captain America: The First Avenger 2011 Action, Fantasy, SciFi Way too long but does an excellent job in making the backstory of one of Marvel's dullest characters exciting. 4
Cafe Society 2016 Comedy, Drama, Period Eisenberg makes a great Woody Allen mini-me, but the film feels all to safe. 3
Capone 1975 Biopic, Crime, Drama Generic gangster fare that doesn't seem to know what its goal is. Dishonest in its modern marketing as a Stallone film. 2.5
Cactus Jack 1979 Comedy, Western Wile E Coyote crossed with a Carry On film. 2
Bullet to the Head 2012 Action Plays out like a violent twist on Tango & Cash. 3
BrOTHERHOOD 2016 Crime, Drama, Thriller A good end to the trilogy with some touching and funny moments, but Clarke is ultimately too comfortable for a role like this. 3.5
Brighton Rock 1947 Crime, Drama, Noir, Thriller Brilliant lead performances and a fantastically believable, but tragically doomed relationship between Pinky and Rose make for a heart wrenching end to a brilliant British noir thriller. 4
Brooklyn 2015 Drama, Romance A nice and gentle tale that is beautifully shot and features great supporting performances from Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent. 4
Bridge of Spies 2015 Period, Thriller A little too 'Speilbergy' for my liking, but a great performance from Rylance and an interesting and unusual spy story. 3.5
Boy and the World 2013 Adventure, Animation, Fantasy, Foreign Language Amazing animation, but it feels like a tech demo rather than a thought through film and I tired of the story early. 2.5
Breach 2007 Biopic, Crime, Drama I sat waiting for a twist that never came, but it still tells a believable tale of twisted internal affairs. 3
Bottle Rocket 1996 Comedy, Crime Click here for our Film Club review. 3
Bone Tomahawk 2015 Adventure, Horror, Western Brutal from the very first scene. Doesn't have the sheen of Hateful 8, but is all the better for it. 4
Blade Runner (Final Cut) 1982 Noir, SciFi, Thriller The definitive version of a stunningly beautiful film that is virtually a work of art. Even the sound is art. The soundtrack, the dialogue, the visuals and the acting are one of a kind. This is closest to Scott's true vision as we will get. 5
Black Mass 2015 Crime, Drama Tries to paint a picture of a killer without really getting inside his head. Depp's performance and the story/legend deserve a better movie. 3
The Take (Bastille Day) 2016 Action, Thriller Enjoyable action film with one of the worst end credits songs in history. Idris, put down the mic! 3
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016 Action, Fantasy, SciFi The film was slow without Snyder's over-use of the slo-mo and almost certainly ends his ownership of the Superman movies. 2.5
Beasts of No Nation 2015 Drama, War The young lead is brilliant but many of the accents are hard to understand and this can detract from an excellent portrayal of the brutality and futility of war. 4
Basic 2003 Action, Crime Despite its A-list cast, the film is exactly what it says on the tin. 2.5
Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015 Action, Fantasy, SciFi Click to see our detailed review. 3
The Avengers 2012 Action, Fantasy, SciFi The Avengers exploded onto our screens to breathe new life into the Marvel universe. And boy did we need it! 4
Attack the Block 2011 Action, Comedy, SciFi Brilliant British take on the Sci-Fi action comedy.Great effects and spot on humour. 4
Assault on Precinct 13 (2005) 2005 Action, Crime, Thriller Loses all of the tension and grit of the original to deliver a run of the mill cop thriller. 2.5
Assault on Precinct 13 1976 Action, Crime, Thriller A tense and stylish twist on the ‘storm the fort’ western. 4
Arrival 2016 Drama, Mystery, SciFi, Thriller Intelligent and very well made sci-fi mystery that just saves itself from the over sentimentality. 4
Arthur Christmas 2011 Adventure, Animation, Comedy Run of the mill Christmas tale, but has some wonderful characters and comedy moments. 3.5
